The British Connection: My Journey in becoming a Steam Enthusiast, Part 7 (chapter 2)

Following my previous post about the official Thomas the Tank engine on the Nene Valley Railway, I wanted to share a few more pictures taken.  The railway was and still is home to some European locomotives that make the collection very unique in the UK (to be found in the next post in this series, click here to view).  In this post I wanted to share a few more pictures taken of locomotives that were running at the time, starting firstly in 1995 and LNER K4 class 3442 The Great Marquess (above and below)

One last picture from 1995 on the Nene Valley Railway before we move on to 1997; a small industrial 0-6-0 named Derek Crouch:

Finally a few pictures taken at Wansford in 1997, when I had my first view of a BR standard class 7MT pacific, in the form of the beautiful 70000 Britannia, that was based on the Nene Valley Railway at the time:
